  • following our recent annual meeting with our accountant to discuss 2012-2013 profits I predict that the next set of figures will show a much greater dip in profits. >5% at least.
    I have been a partner in my present 4 partner practice for more than 25 years. we have had to take a serious look at costs and have made one staff position redundant.
    all partners have cut drawings significantly by several hundreds of pounds per month.
    we have already planned to achieve only 50% of this year's DES's.
    it's not going to get any easier.

    GP partner, North Staffordshire.

  • Work harder and harder with the silver tsunami of multi multi morbidity and get less and less. I know there is a recession, but we are being singled out. Judges, MPs, senior servants and others have no pay or pension cuts.
    It is time to ask ourselves irrespective of anything else whether we should continue to work in a discriminatory system. I feel, as a matter of principle that we should resign from the NHS

  • Can't recall complaints resulting from largess received from last Labour Government. Got to take the rough with the smooth!

  • There is no reference to whole time eqivalency in the whole report. Also GP pay figures are taken from pensionable profit figures where there could be a preference to report lower income or higher expenses in order to reduce pensionable pay for a number of reasons including reducng pension growth or dropping to a lower contribution band!

  • 12.54 you must have been earning a fair amount to be cutting drawings by several hundreds of pounds per month. Several hundred pound a month is the normal take home salary of lots of folk!
